The Ormiston Trust believes in a future where all young people can lead fulfilling lives. By being equipped with the right tools and support, young people and their families can become empowered to make a positive difference on the issues that affect their lives, their communities, and broader society.
Over the last 40 years, we have been providing added value support, resources, and funding for projects and institutions to achieve these goals. We are proud supporters of Ormiston Families and sponsors of three Multi Academy Trusts – Ormiston Academies Trust, Gateway Learning Community, and Birmingham Ormiston Academies—which together support over 40,000 young people. We know that by partnering with and investing in schools, charities, and organisations, we can make a difference together.
One of our key programmes over the last six years has been uniting young people with a shared belief in the power of youth social action. This programme takes a lead from young people, who can both develop their skills, resilience, and wellbeing and create change to tackle issues they care about.
Young people should never be underestimated, but they need our help. Please get in touch with our Head of Education, Aneela Bukhari, or our CEO, James Murray, if you would like to discuss working together.
